Michael Vick said he expected to be a starting quarterback when he reentered the NFL. When I look at some of the quarterback situations around the league, I think he's right, but I don't really see him as a fit in Philadelphia after watching Kevin Kolb for the past two weeks. The return of Donovan McNabb, as well as having Jeff Garcia under contract, makes Vick a guy to consider trading. He saw limited duty in his first real game and he will get better with more work, but his contract next year probably means he will not be an Eagle after 2009. (NFL.com) Comment
The Mets are considering a couple of significant alterations to their home uniforms in 2010, according to team officials. The club has talked about abandoning the pinstripes that have been part of their home uniform since the franchise began in 1962, as well as switching to a cream-colored outfit at Citi Field instead of basic white. The cream uniforms would be similar to the throwbacks they were in August, as well as the current home outfits of the San Francisco Giants. (New York Post) Comment
Most everyone came to the Warriors' start of training camp on Monday to hear what forward Stephen Jackson was going to say about that trade demand he made a few weeks back. But it was Monta Ellis who might have had the most interesting -- and perhaps the most troubling -- thing to say on Day 1. Ellis was asked a relatively innocuous question about playing alongside rookie Stephen Curry, and responded emphatically that the two smallish guards weren't going to be able to play together. "Us together? No," Ellis said. "Can't. We just can't. ... Just can't." Someone then jumped in and said to Ellis: "Do you understand, they (the Warriors and coach Don Nelson) say you can?" "They say you can?" Ellis repeated. "They say you can ... but you can't. I just want to win and you're not going to win that way." (FanHouse) Comment
